Blog: Brookings Study Does a Real Service
In a
recent blog, ACI-NA President Greg Principato reviewed the Brookings Institute study on international air travel and our international airports. He noted “the study shines an important light on a key fact: that a very few airports support a great percentage of this country’s international traffic. Yet, we have a set of policies in this country that utterly fail to take this into account.”

In another blog, Principato observed that consumers may not have the best understanding of government policies that have a big impact on them or their communities. Earlier this year ACI-NA conducted national research that showed consumers don’t fully understand how airports are funded, but when educated, they largely support airport infrastructure investments.

Sacramento, DFW's Campbell Win Concessions Contest

ACI-NA Board Chair Dave Edwards and ACI-NA President Greg Principato look on as Sacramento International Airport celebrates its Griesbach award. From Sacramento: Donna Scranton, G. Hardy Acree and Angela Hourigan.

ACI-NA on Tuesday recognized Sacramento International Airport as the Richard A. Griesbach Award of Excellence winner in the 2012 Airport Concessions Contest. Zenola Campbell, IAP, vice president of concessions, Dallas/Ft. Worth International Airport, was also recognized as ACI-NA’s Concessions “Person of the Year”.

 

Sacramento’s concessions program provides a mix of local, regional and national market presence, that creates a “sense of place” reflective of Sacramento’s role as a Gateway to Northern California. The Terminal B concession program incorporates local elements into the design and concession choices, as well as establishes the right mix of local, regional, and

 

“Now in our 15th year of holding the Richard A. Griesbach Excellence in Airport Concessions Contest, ACI-NA congratulates Sacramento as this year’s overall award of excellence winner,” said ACI-NA President Greg Principato. “These award-winning entries help promote the innovative spirit within the airport concessions industry as well as showcase the unique products and services that airports are providing throughout North America.” 

 

Campbell is responsible for programming one of the largest airport concession programs in North America. Her coordination and leadership have taken the concession program at Dallas/Ft. Worth International Airport from $206 million in gross receipts in 2006, to $267 million in 2011, a 30 percent increase during a challenging business climate.

 

“We are proud to honor Zenola Campbell as this year’s ACI-NA Concessions ‘Person of the Year’,” said Principato. “Zenola’s tenacity and creative approach to concessions management and customer service at DFW serve as an inspiration to her colleagues.”

 

The awards were announced during the 2012 ACI-NA Airport Concessions Conference in Denver, at which more than 380 representatives of the North American airport concessions industry are in attendance. The purpose of the ACI-NA Excellence in Airport Concessions Contest is to inspire creativity in the industry and to recognize innovative and outstanding airport concessions.  Under the continuing financial stress that airports experience, these awards help to demonstrate the importance of airport concessions

This year’s contest received a record-breaking 180 nominations from airports of all sizes throughout the U.S. and Canada. In addition to the Greisbach award, 38 other awards were presented.

ACI-NA Releases Airport Concessions Benchmarking Survey Results

ACI-NA on Monday presented survey findings of their Airport Concessions Benchmarking Survey at the 2012 ACI-NA Airport Concession Conference in Denver. The data from the survey includes concession revenue from 98 airports, representing 81 percent of passenger traffic in the United States and 66 percent of traffic in Canada.

 

“Airports recognize the importance of customer-centric concessions programs,” said Greg Principato, president of ACI-NA. “Our survey data overwhelmingly show that airports understand that competition is not only important in air service but also in providing a variety of food, beverage and retail offerings for their passengers.”

 

Thirty-three percent of the responding airports have developed a mobile application in order to better meet the needs and expectations of air travelers.  Of those airports that have a mobile application, 73 percent promote concessions offerings using mobile platforms.

 

From an airport revenue standpoint, ACI-NA benchmarking data shows that on average customers spent $5 on food and beverage and $3.10 on news, gift and specialty retail per enplanement in 2012.

 

 

Airport data reported to the FAA indicate that total revenue from terminal concessions (food, beverage, retail and services) was $1.51 billion in 2011, up 12 percent from 2010 ($1.35 billion). Revenue from food and beverage programs at U.S. airports represents 35 percent of the total 2011 terminal concessions revenue; retail represents about 40 percent.

 

“In addition to fixed retail space, airports’ carts and kiosks programs provide small businesses the opportunity to have an increasing presence in concession programs as well as enable airports to cater to ever-evolving market trends and demands,” said Principato. 

 

  • 32 percent of respondents have food & beverage kiosks

  • 43 percent of respondents have news, gift and specialty retail kiosks

ACI-NA Plays Significant Role in "Sandy" Preparations

Superstorm Sandy and the nor’easter that followed it caused significant impacts to the U.S. -- air transportation was no exception.  On Oct. 28 and 29, as Sandy approached and made landfall, the airlines canceled almost all commercial flights to and from airports in the mid-Atlantic and Northeastern U.S., causing ripple effects throughout the U.S. and Canada and around the globe. As reported in the Wall Street Journal, over 12,000 flights were canceled worldwide during this period; United Airlines alone has reported that the Sandy cost it almost $90 million. 

 

As if to add insult to injury, a week later, a strong Atlantic storm impacted the Northeastern US, causing over 1,600 additional cancellations and significant numbers of diversions, caused in part by Sandy-related navigational aid outages at the New York area airports.

 

We know that airports worked very hard prior to both storms to ensure facilities were ready and operations were wound down safely and efficiently.  As the storms passed, these same airports were hard at work getting their airports back into operation.  Following Sandy, most U.S. airports were back in operation by mid-day Tuesday, Oct. 30.  JFK and Newark reopened on Wednesday morning, Nov. 1, and, despite extensive saltwater flooding, LaGuardia reopened on Thursday, Nov. 2. 

 

The rapid resumption of air traffic following Sandy's passage was due in no small part to extensive coordination among the FAA, airports, and airlines in the days leading up to and immediately following the storm.  In addition to local coordination, airports in the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic were invited to participate in a series of twice-daily national planning calls with the FAA where all affected parties could discuss urgent needs, facility conditions, and operating status.  These calls helped to ensure that airlines--particularly foreign flag carriers--got up to the minute information regarding whether airports were ready to accommodate them.

 

ACI-NA played a significant role in organizing airport participation in these coordination calls and providing post-call updates to ACI-NA members starting on Thursday before the storm hit and continuing through Tuesday night following the storm’s landfall.  Our efforts to keep airports informed on a real-time basis is an outgrowth of a year’s worth of coordination with the FAA, A4A, IATA and AAAE to improve airport, airline and FAA communications during irregular operations events. ACI-NA and member airports in the Northeast repeated this exercise during the nor’easter, albeit on a smaller scale.

 

We have been encouraged by the success of these efforts and appreciate the FAA’s efforts to get airports more involved in irregular operations planning, response, and recovery.  Next week, we will be sitting down with the FAA, AAAE, and our airline partners to review what worked and what we can do better in the future.  Please let us know if you have suggestions.
